Details

A high quality hybrid variety with upright leaves which has superb tolerance of mildew and other fungal diseases. Very versatile as can be sown for autumn harvest as well as spring-summer and as mini-veg.
Kohl Rabi may look like a vegetable from outer space, but it is easy to grown and quite delicious!  Eat the swollen stems, which are best harvested when no bigger than a cricket ball.

Planting & Harvesting

Sow & Grow

Outdoors: sow thinly March-July, where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½") deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Allow 30cm (1') between rows. Seedlings usually appear in 7-21 days. Thin out to 15cm (6") apart. Water well until plants are established. Or sow indoors for earlier crops, February-April, 0.5cm (¼") deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. Keep moist. Transplant 5cm (2") apart to other trays, when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts) before planting out, May-June, 15cm (6") apart into well-drained soil. Harvest: June-October.

Hint's & Tips

Harvest when no larger than tennis balls. Keep well watered in dry spells, to keep flesh juicy and succulent.
